Lady Gaga говори за “artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball” в “Twitter”

Тази сутрин Lady Gaga помоли феновете да питат в “Twitter” за новото ѝ световно турне “artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball”, като ползват #askGagaARTPOPquestions хаштгаг. Певицата говори за сетлиста, за бъдещите ѝ планове и за някои детайли в нейните изпълнения. Ето най-важното, което тя сподели в феновете в социалната мрежа.
• Планира да издаде DVD на турнето.
• Сетлистът може да претърпи промени с “нови песни”. Иска шоуто да израсне и еволюира лека-полека, в музикален аспект.
• Възможно е костюмите също да претърпят промени
• Всяка вечер избира фенове, с който да се запознае зад кулисите. Няма значение от кой сектор ще ги вземе. За да бъдат избрани трябва да представляват рейв стила.
• Инструменталът на “Mary Jane Holland” е смесица между модерно и електронно кабаре, за това, по време на изпълнението, ползва столове.
• Отваря турнето с “ARTPOP”, с главната цел: да сближи всички
• Любимото ѝ изпълнение е “Born This Way”, защото както обществото, така и правителствата се променили много, откакто излязъл албумът.
• Ruth Hogben е работил с нея по интерлюдиите.


artRAVE: The ARTPOP BALL TOUR-The 2 first sold out shows!

By http://www.accessatlanta.com/ & Melissa Ruggieri

The relationship between Lady Gaga and her Little Monsters is not only rare but achingly genuine.

She goes out of her way to make her fans feel special in a way that someone of her stature really doesn’t need to, yet no matter how big the venues get, she hasn’t lost her ability to share her gratitude with the people who turned her into an arena-sellout superstar.

At Tuesday’s extravaganza at Philips Arena – the second date of what is officially dubbed “artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour,” but we’ll just refer to it as the Lady Gaga concert – the self-defined misfit with the mega voice had those Little Monsters firmly in her grasp for nearly two hours.

Of course there were wild costumes spackled with sequins. Angel wings and clam shell bras. G-strings and neon pink girlie skirts. Powder blue tentacles that could have been swiped from the “Return of the Jedi” costume room. Wigs that ranged from platinum bobs to “Wicked” green panels with bangs to Amy Winehouse-ish bouffants.

And for fans of the commercially unspectacular “Artpop” album, her third studio effort released last fall, nearly every song was presented in grandiose fashion (in fact, “Dope” seemed to be the only song not played from the album).


But amid the endless puffs of confetti spurted into the gleeful crowd (pity the poor guy who was charged with blowing the stuff off Gaga’s numerous catwalks throughout the show) and the horde of dancers hoofing it around the laser-focused singer, came that thing that makes Gaga different: her heart.

Yes, that sounds extremely goopy. But talk to the sweet young man from South Carolina who shakily held up a scribbled sign that read, “Can I sit with you?” and see how he feels today. Gaga spotted it just as she slid behind a keyboard stationed at the end of one of two Lucite catwalks that poked more than halfway across the arena floor and invited him to share her keyboard bench.

“I wanted to create a show that was a celebration of all of the wonderful things you’ve created over the past seven years,” she told the roaring crowd, then edged into the gorgeous, slow-burn piano version of “Born This Way” while her new onstage friend giddily filmed it with his phone.

Halfway through the stripped song – the absolute high point of a show filled with plenty of eye candy, including Gaga changing costumes onstage and being momentarily topless – she asked the audience to put away their phones for a few minutes and “be in the room” with her.

Amazingly, most obliged.

Later in the set, a breathless Gaga sprawled on a chaise lounge for a moment, where she was promptly pelted with gifts from fans. She opened a note attached to a stuffed unicorn and read it aloud to the crowd. Of course the fan who wrote it gushed about the importance of Mother Monster, but the sentiment wasn’t lost on Gaga, who promptly sought the person out and ordered her people to provide him and his friends with backstage passes.

Say what you will about her kookiness, but these interactions never rang false.

It was, however, a jarring segue from the fan note-reading to the harsh “Sexxx Dreams,” but hey, not EVERY second of this show is planned.

While Gaga was backed by a taut five-piece band sporting the all-white motif of the stage, which housed some members in what looked like hutches of sugar cubes, she seemed to share her live vocals with pre-recorded tracks on several songs.

She reached for her lower range on parts of “Donatella” and paid homage to her roots on the still-fizzy “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” her first hits from waaay back in 2008. But it was frequently apparent that she was singing with her own voice.

Gaga works hard for your money – something she attributed to the real meaning of “Applause” (when she receives it, it means she’s doing her job well) – and spent plenty of time sharing dance steps with her troupe on “Paparazzi” and cavorting with six bikini-clad female dancers of all shades and shapes on “Alejandro” (aka, her “La Isla Bonita”).

But the inclusion of most of her past hits, such as the slam-bang “Bad Romance” (“Put your paws up!”) and “Telephone,” with their heady choruses and undeniable hooks, only spotlighted the weaknesses in so many of “Artpop”’s songs, such as the frosty title track and “Fashion,” which contains a glimmer of old-school disco but never takes shape.

That, however, isn’t a flaw with the show, but an indication of Gaga’s questionable artistic decisions with her latest material. She’s a terrific songwriter and, as evidenced during Tuesday’s performance of “Born This Way,” a powerhouse singer who can belt with the biggest queens of pop.

Let’s also not forget that she’s hit all of these peaks and tumbled down valleys so many times already at the age of … 28.

“We’ve grown up together,” she told her worshipful fans. And she isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

Setlist from the artRAVE show:

Lady Gaga Selling Her ‘Rolls Royce’ For Charity

Lady Gaga is parting ways with her red Rolls-Royce Corniche Iii convertible to benefit the MusiCares charity.

The luxury vehicle, in which she travelled to Manhattan’s Guggenheim Museum for an event in September, 2012, is to be auctioned off at the upcoming Julien’s Auctions Music Icons, Legends and Rebels sale in New York.

The car is expected to fetch between $30,000 (Gbp19,000) and $50,000 (Gbp31,250) when it goes under the hammer on 17 May (14) at the Hard Rock Cafe auction, where one of Gaga’s Philip Treacy hats and a stage worn headpiece are also among the lots.
The auction highlights also include George Harrison’s 1962 Rickenbacker guitar, a Paul MCCartney-used Hofner Bass guitar, Elvis Presley’s onstage jumpsuit, U2’s With Or Without You MTV Award and Michael Jackson’s handwritten lyrics to Billie Jean.


‘artRAVE: THE ARTPOP BALL’ TOUR concert rescheduled because of Wizards game.

http://www.newsday.com/ report that the Washington Wizards announced Tuesday, that Lady Gaga’s May 15 concert at the Verizon Center has been moved up to May 12 because it conflicts with a possible Game 6 in the club’s Eastern Conference playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.

The conflict has caused much consternation among Gaga fans who had planned months ahead to travel to Washington on a specific date, but the NBA’s television commitments held sway.

Wizards and Verizon Center owner Ted Leonsis blogged his “sincere apology” for inconveniencing the singer’s fans.
